    DescriptionI turned thirty-seven that summer, older than Dante when he toured Hell, but only by a couple of years - Life couldn't be better for David Albo, an associate professor of English at a small mid-western university. He lives in an idyllic, out-of-town, plantation-style mansion with a beautiful and intelligent wife and an adoring teenage stepdaughter. As he returns to the university after a long and relaxing sabbatical, there's a full professorship in the offing - and, what's more, he's managed to stay off the booze for two whole years. But, once term begins, things deteriorate rapidly. The damning evidence that he has sexually harassed his students is just the beginning as Dave finds himself sucked into a vortex of conspiracy, betrayal, jealousy and murder. Unless he can discover quickly who is out to destroy him, all that he is and loves is about to be stripped away.

    Review quote
    "'I got paper friction burns on my fingers and pressure sores elsewhere because I could barely move until I'd finished it. Things were so tense that at several points I had to remind myself to breathe.' Dovegreyreader's literary blog 'A marvellously thrilling book... the distinction between villain and hero is constantly blurred... a most enthralling story.' Paul Doherty, author of the Hugh Corbett mysteries '...a rattling good yarn. Fast paced, exciting and very very filmic.' Random Jottings of a Book and Opera Lover"
